To the ancient civilisations of Mexico; the Olmecs, the Mayans and the Aztecs, the jaguar was worshipped as a deity. Because of its ability to see in the night, they believed that jaguars were able to move between worlds. The jaguar was a being of the stars and the earth. In the Mayan mythology, the jaguar was the ruler of the Underworld. And, at the Temple of the Jaguar in Chichen Itza, the king would walk beneath a carved procession of jaguars to his coronation.
